UCL Sept 13 round up - Stats & facts

UCL Sept 13 - CR7's brace record, Auba struggles & Man City shines

September 13, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
With Matchday 1 already in the history books, let's have a look at those facts that stood out in the second day of the UEFA Champions League.

Every team involved in the UEFA Champions League Group Stage has had the chance to play their first game, and with some footballers already enjoying success from Day One, fans will surely be wanting more in the next few weeks.

Real Madrid had an easy match against Cyprus' top-ranked team APOEL, while Tottenham earned themselves a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund. In The Netherlands, Manchester City carried on with their fine display on both sides of the pitch by thrashing Feyenoord, but it wasn't all sunshine & rainbows for English teams, as Liverpool wasn't able to walk out of Anfield with a win after drawing 2-2 against Sevilla.

Let's have a look at some interesting facts following the conclusion of Matchday 1 in Europe's most competitive club competition.

CR7 reaches TWO goal scoring milestones in win vs APOEL

Aside from his UCL record for most games played by an outfield footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo continued his quest for gold iin the competition, and he beat Lionel Messi in the race to reach 30 braces in UCL matches. 

"Cristiano: 56 , Messi: 54. Cristiano is now the player with the most goals scored at home in UCL history."

Man City enjoys success led by Stones and Agüero

Pep Guardiola's team has shown massive signs of improvement this season, and their balance in their last two games (9-0) speaks for itself. Furthermore, Sergio Aguero confirmed his legacy as Man City's top scorer with yet one more crucial goal.

If that wasn't enough, John Stones earned a spot for himself in the team's record books.

Aubameyang handed massive blow with disallowed goal

Things could have gone differently for Borussia Dortmund if Italian officers working at Wembley had allowed a clearly valid goal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Moments after the Gabonese ace saw his name taken down from the scoreboard, Harry Kane scored Tottenham's third goal of the day. Did anyone say "VAR"?
